With an 18.2MP Exmor R CMOS sensor, capture high resolution images that take full advantage of the camera's high quality Sony G lens. More pixels means you can enlarge, zoom in and crop your photos without losing detail. Advanced processing technology reduces noise and graininess for incredibly crisp, clear images—even in challenging low-light conditions.
Focusing is faster than ever thanks to the collaboration of four technologies: an advanced Sony G lens, Exmor R CMOS sensor, a newly-developed BIONZ image processor and optimized focus processing. The result? Tack-sharp focus in as little as 0.1 seconds, so you never miss a shot.
